Top 11 BPofGD photos for 2011!

Hello, dear readers!

If all goes accordingly with scheduling/drafts/etc. on Blogger, this should be published on December 30 (at which point, I will be visiting my brother in China!). Here are my 11 favorite BPofGD pix for 2011, in no particular order. (Please note: I had to leave out several gems to stick with 11 so that I could be all gimmicky.)

Short (very short and temporary!) hiatus

Hello, dear BPofGD readers--

I am going to be away from the blog for a few weeks while I'm visiting my brother in China (!!), where, incidentally, some of my fave dogs originate: char peis, chows, and Chinese crested doggies! (If anyone knows someone with a Chinese crested dog, I'm desperate for a photo for BPofGD!) Anyway, hopefully I will get some great pix. And, not to worry: new photos will resume when I'm back (around January 15 or so).

In the meantime, the Top 11 of 2011 will be revealed (ha) on December 30, while I'm mid-air!

Here's to a great 2012!

Kyrie and Fiona

Ahh! I love how Fiona's front paw is slightly extended. BFFs/cousins!

Cone of shame! Maybe I need something like this to stop biting my nails. Eeee.

Thanks to Alice for the photo!

Cheese, part 3

This is kind of how I feel right now: HANGDOG. Those ears! Those paws!

Cheese, part 2

This is the photo that prompted BPofGD. Although I'd compiled quite the archive of dog photos (including two gems that I can't get off my cell phone--I will figure this out so that you can see an Argentinian dogo, dear readers!), looking at this photo made me realize that this dog--Cheese--needed to be shared more broadly. LOOK AT THOSE PAWS!

Chicago pup

Thanks to Caitlin for the great photo!

Two French Bulldogs blog!

Hi hi hi--

I recently stumbled upon this blog (perhaps the antithesis of mine? such great photos!) and absolutely love it! FRENCHIES! Just FYI if you want a consistent photos-of-French-bulldogs fix. Eeeeee!

Maude's dog!

Caption for this one? Amazing!

I REALLY want a German shepherd someday soon. So protective!

Thanks to Maude for the photo!

Lola the Wonderpug! (Part 1)

What's more hilarious than a pug in a bumblebee suit? Thanks to Molly for the great photos! Lola!

When I was four, my parents bribed me with these rollerskates to get me to stop using a pacifier. (Cool blog, eh? I love that there's a piece of the internet covering '80s and '90s nostalgia! Of course there is. There's a piece of the internet covering bad photos of good dogs! Hee.)

I digress.

LOOK AT THIS DOGGIE! A PUPPY with a pacifier? Ahhh! Thanks so much to Renee for the photo.

Ahhhh! LOOK AT THIS PUPPY! So so so so so cute.

Thanks to Amanda for the photo and to Dana for making the connection! More Chloe pix, please!

Blog publicity!

Hello, readers!

I recently got a little boost in my overall stats (hip hip) from this site. Ahhh! I am so excited that someone asked, "Are there any pet brag sites I can visit to read about and see pictures of other peoples' animals?" and someone answered, "Bad Photos of Good Dogs?" Yes, pet brag!

So, on that note, please encourage your friends to send me bad pix of their good dogs! I'm going to do a "Best Of 2011" list, too, so send me any of your own recent gems you'd like to see on the blog.

Also, I started a Facebook page--spread the word, please!

Finally, if you have any suggestions for BPofGD, please email me! (

Thank you all dearly!


Dogs and babies! Thanks to Melissa for the great photo!

Caitlin at the dog park, part 1

I love these photos so much--it looks like Caitlin has a chorus of dogs around her! Also, if you wanna get hooked up with a temporary-tattoo-of-the-month deal, check it! (In addition to being an awesome dog park buddy, Caitlin is also super creative and fun.)

Adventures at the dog park

What's better than being piled up with doggies--mostly FRENCH BULLDOGS--at the dog park!? Happy Monday!

Surfing bulldogs

What is it with bulldogs and surf/skate/snow-boards? Although this deviates from my typical photo, it's that time of year when everyone needs to watch a video of adorable bulldogs. Enjoy!

(Thanks to Jacob W. for alerting me to the video!)
